CHARTER OF COMP.STD.WIRELESS

The primary goal of this newsgroup would be to to promote consistency and
mutual awareness between existing committees (e.g., IEEE 802.11 and ETSI
RES-10) and any future committees. The newsgroup would expedite their
deliberations by providing a convenient forum for technical discussion between
their scheduled meetings.  Additionally, the open nature of the newsgroup would
help the standardization process by allowing people not normally connected with
the standards groups to provide their input.  The newsgroup would have no
official standing with any standards group or other organization.

A secondary goal would be to explore applications for wireless network
technology.  The emerging standards must, after all, correctly anticipate
these applications.

	Acceptable Postings:
		Any questions, comments, results, or suggestions which are 
		related to any of the existing committees discussing wireless
		technologies.  This can include, but is not limited to, 
		current research, development or general applications of
		wireless networks.

HISTORY OF THE GROUP:

comp.std.wireless is a moderated newsgroup which passed its vote for
creation by 182:12 as reported in news.announce.newgroups on 11 June 1993.

PROPONENT:

Alexander Bartolich <alexander.bartolich@gmx.at>
